Kumpir is a traditional Turkish streetfood wich is based on a baked potato with cheese and toppings. In this case, the inside of the potato is mixed and mashed heavily with Gouda cheese and topped with olives, sweet corn, roasted sausage pieces, and salty pickles. Dressed with ketchup and mayo. Many different types of toppings exists, so very easy to make as you like.

    As a Turk, I approve. Also, putting gouda cheese in a kumpir is a 10/10 move.

      Thank you <3. I find that Gouda gives more taste. Kaşar can be a bit too fatty for my taste

        Completely reasonable. We only use kaşar because, well… It’s just what we use here 😂 Gouda, mozzarella, gruyere - all great choices.

          kaşar definetly have its places as well. It’s amazing for künefe or just as a snack on a breakfast table. I love Turkish food so much. I need to post here more often and every time i make Turkish food i think.

    That’s a new baked potato topping selection that’s going into my rotation then. Looks great!
